On August 12th, we left Nottingham for the Cotswolds, before heading through Wales where we boarded a car ferry in Pembroke to Rosslare, Ireland. We drove south and then north along the west coast along the Ring of Kerry Road to the Dingle Peninsula. From there, we checked out the Cliffs of Moher, Galway, Connemara National Park, Sligo, Letterkenny, Figary, Giants Causeway and Carrick a rege rope bridge. We met some friends and headed to Belfast for the night in Northern Ireland before getting a ferry from Larne to Cairnryan, Scotland the following day.
Once in Scotland, we headed north to the Isle of Skye, checking out Buachaille Etive Mor, Glencoe, Plockton, Sligachan old bridge, The Storr, Kilt Rock, The Quiraing and fairy pools. We headed further north to Gairloch, Pool Ewe and Ullapool where we got 30 mins north on the North Coast 500 road before having to turn around and go back to Ullapool to fix the van! The van spent three weeks at the mechanics so we flew back to Nottingham on September 3rd and back to Ullapool on September 19th.
We had the van for less than 24 hours before we hit a large elk deer and had to be towed to Perth, Scotland, only 45 minutes drive away. We packed everything we had in the van and got a hire car to drive the rest of the way back to Nottingham. Unfortunately, we had to leave the van in Scotland!
This is our final van video, we hope you enjoyed watching!
